though the scenery is complete,
for the one in the train,
what he sees
is restricted to his window’s width.
the world changes at the speed he travels,
slow, fast or faster,
and the flow gets an apparent order,
in the context of before and after.

but soon this relative perception
completes its intrinsic function.
and when his mind is saturated,
when compartments do not fit,
all he has to do is
get off the train
and turn full circle
to see all of the terrain.
then the cycle is completed
and wholeness appreciated.
